Another abduction drama has been threatening the city of Takoradi in the Western Region. Unknown people have abducted a thirteen (13)-year-old girl who is a student at Queen of Peace Academy in Anaji. For obvious reasons, the victim's identity, as well as the names of the victim's guardian or parents, have been concealed.
The 13-year-old girl is believed to have left school and arrived at the residence about 3 p.m. today after closing hours. An anonymous call from the kidnappers, demanding a ransom of 5,000 Ghana Cedis (GHC5,000.00) before her release, worried relatives.
The story, which was confirmed on Facebook by a local television journalist, Nhyiraba Paa Kwesi Simpson, had spread dread across the city, as it reminded residents of the three-year-old disappearance of the Takoradi girls. The crime was reported to the police by the victim's family, and investigations are continuing.
According to sources, a woman identified as Josephine contacted the victim's grandfather and demanded payment of the ransom. She permitted a brief conversation with the victim to confirm that they had the girl in their possession.
The police and families have yet to make any arrangements to talk with the kidnappers. It's worth noting that the stretch between the school and Kansaworodo, where the four abducted girls from the previous three years were found, is inside the same municipality and only a short way apart.
The lessons learned from previous occurrences should be used to advise the police and family members on how to manage the situation. The police have yet to remark on the situation.
More coming soon.
